‘not Nobody, Not No How’ - Poem by Robert Sheridan

“If I don’t stand for something,
I’ll fall for everything” – no
substitutes, no exchanging;
Tired of being a giver – will
no longer be a taker, will not
be removed, will not replace;
Will not gradually pass into,
nor transfer – don’t bother
knocking at my door;
No more digression, nor
picking-up coins of low
Others out there are adept at
changing the spelling of the
“Word” – dictionary abandoned;
Changing their clothing faster
than a wolf in sheep’s clothing
Sewn together with lies;
I however will not budge,
and not nobody, not no how
will make me change!

    Sounds like some stubborn trait our lineage shares. (Report) Reply
